Local government to start using GOV.UK Notify

Invite-only fact-finding phase announced

GOV.UK Notify – the government’s digital communications platform – is now ready to be offered to local government.

A blog post written by Peter Herlihy from the Government Digital Service explained that Notify is becoming established in central government – 70 service teams from 34 different organisations have used it to send more than 12 million emails, text messages, and letters to their users – which means it’s now ready to be rolled out to local government.

The post added that the GDS will invite 20 service teams in local government to start sending messages.

“This means we can make sure everything works for these teams before we open it up for the rest of local government in a few months,” it read.

“Local government needs for sending notifications are very similar to those of central government. During the invite-only period we’ll learn what’s different for local government in terms of branding and paying to use Notify.

“Once we’ve made Notify available to all of local government, we’ll be looking to take a similar approach with the NHS.”
